Today is #WorldNoTobaccoDay
Having had the privilege of working in a deaddiction set up as a part of my residency, I would like to reiterate even if it sounds cliché -
Tobacco is the single biggest enemy of the country and tough one to get rid of. 1/n

It messes up our reward pathways and makes us a slave.
"It's not you who is smoking the cigarette, it's the cigarette that's smoking you." 2/n

Btw, did you know smoking can even cause erectile dysfunction? Not cool, right? 😉 3/n

It's #WorldNoTobaccoDay! 🚭

Tobacco products kill over 8 million people every year. The industry is targeting youth to replace people that their products are killing so they can make a killing in profits 💰 📈.

It’s time to #SpeakOut! #TobaccoExposed

🚬 tactics to attract youth:
✔15,000+ flavours to attract children/adolescents, in smokeless tobacco, shisha, e-cigarettes
✔Promotion & free sample distribution at popular events for youth
✔Advertising/placement on movies, TV, social media with paid influencers
Break free from the tobacco & related industries’ manipulation by becoming educated on their tactics and the harm caused by their products. 🚭
